Going home. No answers. Sit and wait.


I’m going home to see what happens next. The 48 culture never grew anything. No bugs. No infection. A little blood. All pretty normal. I’m armed with antibiotics. Exhausted from being in the hospital several nights. Sad there’s no verdict here. The attending plastics fellow was easy on the eyes. Bonus.

Two scenarios were presented to me. See if the frustrated skin and tissue calms down and reabsorbs, and the exterior sores heal on it’s own. Or. If it bursts allowing the outside world to expose the expander implant, have the implant removed and start over at a later date.

Hoping it all goes smoothly, heals as it should, I’ll be keeping close tabs with my teams. Monday I’ll be back for infusion, slip in to see Dr. M my primary surgeon for a quick look-see and hope nothing has advanced. Dr. K, the plastics doc, will be at Rush Monday also, so I’ll try to see him too, if I can make it happen. I have a standing appointment with him on Thursday, as well.

At some point I’ve got to let my radiologist in on all that’s new in my life. I’ll save that for somewhere in the middle of the week. Too much excitement for the last few days.

More in a few…
